VIENNA—Austria's Schoe-
nau Castle, the transit center
for emigrating Soviet Jews,
was closed Monday by the
government. The Red Cross
Center at Woellersdorf, 25
miles south of here will take
all future emigrants unable
to continue on immediately.
A transit period of 14 hours
has been set as the maxi-
mum for those fit to travel
on to Israel.

In September, Chancellor
Bruno Kreisky announced
that the center would be
closed in exchange for the
release of three Soviet Jews
and an Austrian customs of-
ficial taken the day before
by Arab gunmen.

Nine-Hour Work Day Pondered

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A
ministerial economic commit-
tee is to broach with Hista-
drut the suggestion of intro-
ducing a nine-hour day in
factories, offices and other
work places so as to share
the burden more fairly be-
tween the reservists in the
armed forces and the rest of
the labor force.
The decision came at the
committee's weekly meeting
in Jerusalem. The proposal
was originally mooted by
Deputy Transport Minister
Gad Yaacobi—and Finance
Minister Pinhas S'apir is said
to support it.
Koor Industries Director-
General Meir Amit has taken
the matter a stage further by
actually introducing a nine-
hour day in the huge Koor
industrial network. (Koor is
Histadrut-owned).
Meanwhile, economists and
columnists are warning the
public that a long period of
belt tightening is scheduled.

Kreisky said he closed the
center, against much inter-
national protest, because it
presented too great a secur-
ity problem. Even a visit by
Israel Prime Minister Golda
Meir didn't help.
The Austrian chancellor
Youth Aliya

pass through his country,

Forced loans and voluntary
loans have eaten into family
incomes, and increased food
and electricity prices have
made further encroachments.
Last week—in the wake of
electricity raises of some 30
per -cent—the price of water
skyrocketed by 20 per cent.
And, following fuel price
hikes, taxi fares went up 15
per cent in Jerusalem and 20
per cent in Tel Aviv.
The Central Bureau of Sta-
tistics, in a perversely
timed statement, announced
that in January-September
1973, 32,500 new cars had
been purchased, 70,300 TV
sets, 72,600 washing ma-
chines and 55,300 refrigera-
tors—an average rise of 31
per cent over the same period
last year.
